CHAIR YOGA

Wednesdays, October - November 20, from 1:30 - 2:30 PM

Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher Rachel Tome will continue to teach Chair Yoga at UUCJ, 1255 Prendergast Avenue in Jamestown, N.Y., on Wednesdays, October 23 - November 20, from 1:30 - 2:30pm.

These classes will emphasize improving flexibility and balance, with each person working to the best of their ability, recognizing that flexibility and balance change from class to class. The sessions will teach breathing, stretching, and relaxation techniques while emphasizing the practices of being present, listening to one’s body, and accepting where one is today in terms of flexibility, strength, and alignment.

The chair can be very useful for those who have trouble getting down to and up from the floor. It is also beneficial to use when practicing balancing poses.

While any form of yoga will give you the benefits of physical strength and flexibility, Kripalu yoga also teaches you to accept yourself as you are at this moment.

A resident of Warren, Tome has been teaching yoga classes in the Warren and Jamestown areas for more than 13 years. She is also certified in LifeForce Yoga, a practice designed to help with depression and anxiety, and Prenatal Yoga. When she isn’t busy being a mother, wife, and Yoga teacher, she loves to hike in the woods or curl up with a good book.

The fee is $10 per class or $40 for the entire 5-week session.
